TitleTransportation Photograph Scrapbook Finding Aid
AbstractThe collection includes 549 negatives and 318 original prints of images taken in the 1910s focusing on railroads and transportation and rural and urban life. The geographic scope is the Midwest, primarily Missouri and Kansas. The railroad photographs pertain to the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad line. Scenes of both eastern Jackson County and Kansas City are common. The most striking features are the modes of transportation used at the time: the railroads, the newly evolving automobile, the street car, the interurban to Excelsior Springs, river boats, and an early airplane taking off in Overland Park.
